Mushy Peas

Mushy Peas. Never ate them or even heard of them until today. We were browsing in World Market. I’m sure making them at home is superior to the canned version. A recipe below. Hoping blog readers who are familiar with them will leave a word.

Looked up Mushy Peas on Wikipedia

And here’s a link to Jamie Oliver’s recipe for fish and chips and mushy peas.

  1. Read about mudhy peas on wikipedia. They do not sound bad. I would try any version. It is an interesting recipe. I wonder who concocted the very first version.

  2. Had them in Scotland with Fish and Chips. I’ve had better peas. I have never cooked them.

  3. yep, the ones from the chip shop here in the UK are almost neon-green…..lovely!! they really set-off the tangy-ness of the lashings of salt and vinegar that you need to put on your fish and chips! 🙂 🙂

  4. I only like frozen peas, not over cooked. But, having never tried mushy peas, I can’t pass judgment. Our granddaughter likes mashed potatoes with peas – mixed together.

    • When I was a kid my mom would make “Beef Manhattan” – which was mashed potatoes, canned peas, and shredded beef with gravy all mixed together. I have NO idea how she thought of such a concoction…

  5. In college, a friend and I enjoyed canned peas cooked till they got mushy and the skins fell off. Who knew they came in a can already mushy!

  6. We lived in England for a few years – lots of mushy peas served in pubs and fish/chips places. Seemed like a strange thing to do to peas.
    A friend of mine serves an appetizer of seared scallops on pea purée – it is wonderful.
    Pea purée or mushy peas – maybe the big difference between the two is the connotation of the descriptors!
